Chilly here - only 4 degrees when I came home about an hour ago so hope nothing dies of frostbite out there - getting clearer and colder by the minute. It never got above 6 degrees today but the sunshine was beautiful
I can sympathise Rbeak. I live not far from where I grew up and the whole area is unrecognisable with the amount of housebuilding. They built a new primary school about ten years ago which is the biggest in Europe...not big enough now for the amount of families. Not enough facilities either. Ridiculous, yet people are desperate to move there because of the schools and the shortish commute to Glasgow. All the greenbelt land across from my parents' house was built on years ago and there is now yet another development on the other side - huge houses with no gardens to speak of. Very sad.
That was a nasty experience for your aunt LP. Glad she's ok.
Verd - very worrying when things like that happen on your doorstep.
I think we need to tow Britain several thousand miles west....
